Our most popular yeast strain is California Ale Yeast. This blend celebrates the strengths of California- clean, neutral fermentation, versatile usage, and adds 2 other strains that belong to the same "clean/neutral" flavour category. The additional strains create complexity to the finished beer. This blend tastes more lager-like than 'California Ale Yeast'. Hop flavours and bitterness are accentuated, but not to the extreme of California. Slight sulphur will be produced during fermentation. Find the perfect White Labs yeast here
